That means it's been 16 YEARS since she gifted us with one of the greatest bubblegum pop hits of ALL TIME.

"If I had the money," Mandy said, back in 2006, "I would give a refund to everyone who bought my first two albums."

That didn't stop her from covering it — yes, she covered her own song — while on tour in 2007.

After successfully stripping down Rihanna's "Umbrella," Mandy took on "Candy" — a song she said "absolutely has no meaning whatsoever."

Can't really blame her, can you?

Anyway, happy birthday, Mandy! 🎉🎉🎉 Release some new music, please?!
